Most technology people have a unique perspective on problem solving and DIY. “Hacking Your Health” shows you how to put those same principles to use with your health and body. David will cover getting your lab work done directly (for “science” or to save money), fun and profitable things to do with your imaging data like 3D Printing your head, how to “be the best patient you can be” including steps to help prevent medical errors and getting second opinons, and a few critical things to understand about how the health care system as a whole as well as how hospitals and your doctor operate.
